The Allman Brothers Band have officially announced the dates for their annual March residency at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, a tradition that started in 1989. The iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award-winning group will play 10 shows at the Beacon between March 1 and 16.
Tickets for the Beacon Theatre shows go on sale to the public Friday, January 11 at 10AM ET and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com and www.beacontheatre.com and via charge by phone at (800)745-3000. If tickets remain, they will also be available at the venue box office beginning Saturday, January 12.
The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND first began performing multi-night engagements at the Beacon in 1989, with few exceptions. The Beacon Theatre shows traditionally mark the beginning of a busy year for the group, which consists of GREGG ALLMAN (vocals and keyboards), BUTCH TRUCKS (drums and tympani), JAIMOE (drums), WARREN HAYNES (vocals, lead and slide guitar), DEREK TRUCKS (slide and lead guitar), OTEIL BURBRIDGE (bass) and MARC QUINONES (congas and percussion).
“Yes, it’s that time,” laughs GREGG ALLMAN. “The Beacon run is always magical. The room sounds great, lots of familiar faces and the band really stretches out. After Macon, New York is really our second home. There’s just something about it, and our fans know it.”
Beyond their Beacon shows, the group has been invited by Eric Clapton to perform one night at his annual “Crossroads” benefit show April 12-13 at Madison Square Garden and they’ll headline two nights at the Wanee Festival in Live Oak, FL April 19- 20, which the group organizes itself. Wanee launched in 2005 and has featured bands like Widespread Panic, Robert Plant, The Black Keys, Furthur, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Steve Miller, Doobie Brothers, O.A.R., Grace Potter, Galactic, Stephen Stills, Little Feat and more.
